Research Highlights Common Sunscreen Mistakes

Sunscreen can be a valuable tool for skin cancer prevention — but only if it’s used correctly. When applying sunscreen, many people make mistakes that could compromise their protection from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays, which may increase their risk of skin cancer.

Rise of Aggressive Reef Predator May Impede Sea Urchin Recovery, Study Finds

A new study suggests that an aggressive reef competitor—the Threespot Damselfish—may have impeded the recovery of Caribbean long-spined sea urchin populations after a mysterious disease outbreak caused a massive die-off of these animals over three decades ago.

Engineering Students Develop 3D-Printed Prosthetic Hand for Campus Employee

When a group of six Binghamton University biomedical engineering students launched a collaboration to create a functional biomechanical hand using 3D printing technology one year ago, their thoughts turned to an amputee whom they would often see every day, and to the opportunity to improve her life.

Better Than BMI: Study Finds More Accurate Way to Determine Adolescent Obesity

Researchers have found a new, more accurate way to determine if adolescents are overweight, important findings considering many school districts label adolescents — who tend to be more vulnerable to weight bias and fat shaming than adults — as obese.

Hafnia Dons a New Face

As computer chips become smaller, faster and more powerful, their insulating layers must also be much more robust -- currently a limiting factor for semiconductor technology. A collaborative University of Kentucky-Texas A&M University research team says this new phase of hafnia is an order of magnitude better at withstanding applied fields.

New Lung “Organoids” in a Dish Mimic Features of Full-Size Lung

New lung “organoids”—tiny 3-D structures that mimic features of a full-sized lung—have been created from human pluripotent stem cells by researchers at Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC). The team used the organoids to generate models of human lung diseases in a lab dish, which could be used to advance our understanding of a variety of respiratory diseases.

Study Finds Athletes with ADHD More Likely to Choose Team Sports, Could Increase Injury Risk

A new study from The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center finds athletes with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are more likely to compete in team contact sports than individual sports, which could increase their risk of injury.

Study Finds Bacteria Living in Marine Sponge Produce Toxic Flame Retardant-Like Compounds

A Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego-led research team discovered for the first time that a common marine sponge hosts bacteria that specialize in the production of toxic compounds nearly identical to man-made fire retardants.
